This is my memorial portrait and tribute to Cecil, a magnificent African lion in his prime.

Cecil lived primarily in the Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. He was being studied and tracked by a research team of the University of Oxford as part of a long-term study.

On the night of July 1, 2015, Cecil was illegally lured out of the protected area and wounded with an arrow by Walter Palmer, an American big-game trophy hunter. He then tracked and killed Cecil with a compound bow the following morning, 10 and 12 hours later.   Sadly, Palmer was never charged for his crime

Cecil was 13 years old when killed.
